For December’s Made in Sussex, Sussex Business Times takes a look at the success story that is Redwing Roofing
Redwing Roofing has been serving the roofing needs of the South East since April 2013, from its company headquarters in Crowborough. Founded by Director, Jason McCarthy following his departure from a national roofing contractor, Redwing started out working on small domestic projects for private customers and local building firms. Jason subsequently invited ex-colleague Daniel Burgan to join forces as Co-Director, between them combining over 50 years experience and countless qualifications. Both Directors have a vision to apply their knowledge and expertise to provide both private customers and building contractors with an exemplary roofing service.
Since winning its first large contract for McCulloch Homes in late 2013, the company has grown from strength to strength. Starting out with just two tilers, Redwing now employs over 30 staff including highly qualified tradesmen, an apprentice and a health and safety consultant to ensure that Redwing adheres to the strict guidelines in the industry.
Redwing Roofing offers its customers a wealth of quality roof installations including traditional slate, tiling and lead work combined with modern single ply and liquid flat roofing systems to ensure a bespoke service to suit the customers individual roofing needs. Both Jason and Daniel oversee the day to day running of the company and pride themselves on customer satisfaction, ensuring all jobs are completed to the highest of standards. Company Director, Jason said: “No matter how large or small the job, we take pride in our work, consistently delivering a quality service. Customer satisfaction is of paramount importance and as both Daniel and I sit on various technical committees including the Institute of Roofing, we are often ahead of the curve with British Standard changes and able to implement these to the benefit of our customers, so they know they are getting it right first time.” He added: “We also have a full spectrum of roofing knowledge enabling us to ensure the correct application to many of the complex projects we are often involved in.”
It is this customer focus that has seen Redwing Roofing double in size year on year and the company now works with high profile developers including Taylor Wimpey and Cala Homes. As Jason says: “Thanks to the confidence and relationships we have with our customers, we have grown exponentially and been able to further invest in the business, most recently purchasing new premises and redeveloping the website to better serve our customers. Despite the current challenging economic environment, we will continue to strive for further expansion, maintaining our reputation in the industry and providing a competitive, quality roofing service to our customers in Sussex, Surrey and Kent.”
Following its selection as a finalist in the UK Roofing Awards this year, Redwing Roofing has most recently been appointed to undertake the roof tiling works at Redrow Homes new development at Penlands Farm in Haywards Heath. The first phase of the development consists of 118 new build dwellings and work commences later this year.
